    What's wrong now?

    I courage my students to include diversity as members of the society.

    What is wrong with this sentence? Those greenish lines keep coming underline the sentence. Someone, please.

    Re: What's wrong now?

    I instruct my students to see the importance of diversity as members of the society.

    Rewrite in a little bit of difference, the geenish lines went off. Anyone to clear my confusion? Thanks.

    You used the wrong word - you ENCOURAGE someone to do something, not COURAGE them.
